Analyzing longstanding activity of Y.A.Levada and the impact he has exerted and still exerts on the academic community, the author comes to a paradoxical conclusion – talking about the phenomenon of Levada, we have to deal with a real phenomenon in our science, rather than with a scientific school and its progeny, as well as disciples of a famous sociologist. Besides, A.Levinson draws parallels between the today’s change of the Russian Central Public Opinion Institute (WCIOM) leadership and the actual liquidation of the Institute of Concrete Social Studies of the Academy of sciences thirty years ago.
